If you haven’t seen Ben Heck‘s show or projects before, you are in for a treat. (Check out his previous 3D printer, the printrbotGO that melds together concepts from printrbot and his awesome briefcase 3D printer.)
From the press release for the new series:
element14′s “The Ben Heck Show” kicks off a 3-part episode series this week in which Ben designs a Double Decker 3D Printer, capable of printing identical 3D objects simultaneously.
Each week Ben will construct a different component of the 3D printer – the extruder, X-carriage, Y-carriage and Z-lift – assembling all the components to unveil the final project in the final episode of the three-part series.
Each segment will be available for viewing exclusively on element 14 on Friday – Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 – prior to the official air dates on Monday.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
